Rear Brake Switch Question???

As most of you are aware, I'm chasing an electrical problem dealing with my signals.. I am trying to narrow it down. The question is, should I have switched power to both of the wires for the rear brake light switch? As of now, one wire pulls 12V and the other pulls about 3 1/2 V's??? I would think that one would not pull any current until they touch making the brake light come on????? Let me know if I'm off base here. However, if I'm right I might have found a place to start chasing the problem!!

Thanks in advance!!

Re: Rear Brake Switch Question???

I'm no expert, but I'd say if you're dealing with a two wire switched circuit one should be hot and the other NOT. Green is usually the color for ground. If this is the color of your suspicious wire I'd tend to agree with you on the culprit.

I do all my own stunts.

Re: Rear Brake Switch Question???

I'm not sure, but if it helps any, I removed the stock rear brake switch, exposing two wires. (rearset installation) From there, I wired in the two wires attached to a pressure banjo bolt. When I asked Dan Kyle which wire hooked on which, he said it didn't matter which one went where. I'm not sure what that means exactly, other than there's not a postive and negative?

Correct But one has to have power to activate the brake light... But I don't think they both should. looking at the wiring diagram it looks like they both should not have power only one until they are connected when the brake pedal is pushed to activate the light..
